The GIGABYTE X399 enthusiast motherboard with AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ Processor. Do everything, do it all at the same time, and do it without sacrificing responsiveness. Render. Stream. Compile. Encode. Work or Play. Real-World Productivity or Virtual Reality Entertainment. The GIGABYTE X399 enthusiast motherboard has the power to overwhelm your most daunting workloads.

The New, Ultimate Platform for Desktop
With up to 16 cores, the AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ processor can command 32 threads, the most multi-processing power that has ever been unleashed on a consumer desktop. Overwhelm your workloads with 40MB of processor cache, without sacrificing efficiency thanks to the world-class IPC performance of the “Zen” architecture.

Quad-Channel DDR4 for devastating memory bandwidth, 64 lanes of incredible PCIe® 3.0 connectivity, and native USB 3.1 Gen2 10Gb/s support on a chipset. With every processor multiplier-unlocked to be configured as you see fit, the Ryzen™ Threadripper™ platform is create to keep you on the bleeding edge of tomorrow.

Free NVMe RAID Support
NVMe RAID for AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ platform is now supported for free. By combining multiple NVMe SSDs together into a RAID 0, 1, or 10 array, it is possible to greatly enhance disk performance or data integrity. With a single GPU in the system, up to 7 NVMe SSDs array can be supported by GIGABYTE X399 motherboards.

4-Way Graphics with Premium 48 PCIe Lanes Bandwidth
GIGABYTE X399 motherboards feature a unique PCI Express design that utilizes 100% of all 48 lanes from the CPU when in a 4-Way or 3-Way graphics configuration providing the full bandwidth available and provide the best graphics bandwidth possible to the user.

Triple PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2 Direct from CPU
GIGABYTE X399 Motherboards are focused on delivering M.2 technology to enthusiasts who want to maximize their system’s potential.

Triple M.2 Thermal Guard
With durability in mind, GIGABYTE provides a thermal solution for M.2 drives—Thermal Guard. The M.2 Thermal Guard prevents throttling and bottlenecks from M.2 devices as it helps to reduce and dissipate heat before it becomes an issue.

Server-Class Digital Power Design
GIGABYTE X399 motherboards use an all digital CPU power design from International Rectifier® which includes both 4th Generation digital PWM Controllers and industry-leading 3rd Generation PowIRstage® controllers. These 100% digital controllers offer incredible precision in delivering power to the motherboard's most power-hungry and energy-sensitive components, allowing enthusiasts to get the absolute maximum performance from their new AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper CPUs.

Server Level Chokes
GIGABYTE X399 motherboards feature Server Level Chokes.
• Server level reliability
• High current capacity
• New design reduces heat created by power loss and provides efficient power delivery to CPU VRM area.

Gold Plated Solid Power Connectors
GIGABYTE X399 motherboards feature gold plated ATX 24pin & ATX 12V 8pin+4pin power connectors for offering stable and affordable power supply while CPU overloading. Gold provides superior conductivity and signal transmission than standard implementations, also providing far better reliability and stability over time by resistance to metal corrosion caused by frequent use overtime.
